I create bunches of related bookmarks within each folder, each set off by separations. For the first time, I sorted by key words, and when I switched back to site name/my manual sort, all the work was gone. It's all sorted by alpha now. I assume that can't be undone, but I'm holding out hope.

I've had to re-install (restart) Firefox and lost all my add-ons. The add-on list is now VERY LONG and I don't want to spend time looking at each one individually. Is there a way to separate them such as not looking at ones in foreign languages, or putting all that have a similar function in a group?

My address bar is malfunctioning. If an hour ago, I look up 'bicycle', and I then open up a new tab, the address bar will show 'bicycle'. Similarly, if I am on a website, instead of the address bar showing me that site's URL, I get either a previous search term or a previous URL. Highlighting the address bar and hitting 'esc' updates it to the current URL. Please help!

Usually when I open Firefox I have my Optimum homepage. Now I have a folder with a tab that says "New Tab". I contacted Optimum to be sure I had a connection and I do. I was unable to type their address in the bar - it is inactive. Sometimes when I move the cursor around the homepage jumps in but the topics in the line above do not respond. Thank you in advance for your help.

How to contact an addon's developer to report a glitch

The recent update to the Print Edit addon now requires the user to save the edited document before printing. When I select "Print" from the addon task bar, a "downloads" window appears. This is new: previously, a pop-up appeared asking whether or not I wanted to save the edited document. Now, in the current configuration, if I select "Save", I can print my edited document, if I choose to "Cancel" and not save the document, I am unable to print from the "Print Edit" program. I can use the Firefox print option, but the document still must be closed and I get a pop-up reminding me about saving the edited document. Rarely, if ever, have I chosen to save an edited document.

I unsuccessfully tried to find options to adjust preferences within the program and I looked for developer contact information online. If a "fix" to this change is available online, I would like to know where. If not, would the developer please revert to the non-mandatory "save" option.

Hard to hit the "right spot" on the X icon when closing a tab - only a very small area gets a response

When I try to close a tab, if I place my cursor over the X icon and click, nothing happens. If I carefully hover the tip of my cursor over the very bottom of the (invisible) box around the X, the box will turn darker grey and I can finally click and close the tab. I'd estimate the grey box around the X is 1cmx1cm, but only the bottom 1-2mm elicit a response.

I have restarted Firefox and my computer. My browser version is up to date. I am not using any extensions. I am on a 2009 Mac running Yosemite.

For about a month I'm unable to log into my Yahoo Mail account from Firefox on my Mac. All the proper screens appear and I fill them in, but when I hit "login" Firefox hangs. I see the circle thingy rotating indefinitely.

I know this is a Firefox issue because I can access my mail from another browser (e.g. Safari). I think it also relates specifically to Macs because I've never had this issue on my PC.

Firefox is the latest version (78.2.0esr (64-bit)). The Mac is a Mac Pro Mid-2012 running Yosemite 10.10.5.

Thank you!

Try harder. But don't feel put out. The Mac never crashes, eh. I have used them for decades and prefer the Mac. But I crashed it twice weekend before last. Trying to load a neuroscience imaging software with Matlab Run Time. Took the machine to Apple. Nice guy, Henry. Couldn't diagnose the problem. Did a clean install. Migrated to OS X10.10. Don't like it. I am still having problems with the machine. But I love the machine. I hate using my DOS machine. Beside the neuroscience software I am using is open software and very UNIX oriented which suits the command line just fine. Much of the software is not ready for .10 but worked great on .9. Well, that is until the crashes. Of the crash, well the lesson for me is, if you have a crash, debug and don't go on to the next task until you have solved it. Work with Apple with the crash report in front of you.

You know, in the Oscar Wilde play, the Importance of Being Earnest he tells Lady Bracknell that he has lost both parents. "To have lost one parent can be viewed as a misfortune. But to have lost two parents smacks of carelessness." Yeah, two crashes. Shame on me.

Well, we all learn, don't we?

Great to have this forum, though. Yippee! Snoop clicking his heels in glee.
